Light Projects new ArtLED fittings illuminate two prestigious projects in the UK and the Netherlands including work by Rubens and Rembrandt.

New spotlight on Media Space Gallery Art

The newly-launched ArtLED has been specified by Kevan Shaw Lighting Design and installed by DHA Designs for ‘Only in England: Photographs by Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr’, the opening exhibition in the new Media Space Gallery at the Science Museum. It has also been shortlisted as ‘Interior Luminaire of the year’ at the Lighting Design Awards 2014.

Manufactured from extruded and diecast aluminium with an epoxy polyester powder-coated finish, the ArtLED uses the latest Xicato XSM 1,300lm Artist series LED and combines a highly crafted and designed lighting fitting with high CRI (Ra ≥ 95) and colour consistency. The fitting is available with a self-dim facility or Dimmable Via Analogue 1-10V and DALI.


Beam reflector options include 14°, 27° and 52° and a special Wall Wash Reflector allows the ArtLED to be used for a range of different lighting tasks and applications.

The advent of a Glare Guard Baffle for both narrow and medium reflectors eliminates the large quantity of glare traditionally associated with LED fittings.

In addition, a unique forward throw heat sink, also designed by Light Projects, ensures the cool running of the module while maximising the reflector depth.

A proprietary ‘Easy Clip’ cassette facilitates quick change of reflectors and easy addition of accessories.

The ArtLED is fully compatible for use on many existing single and three circuit tracks including Eutrac, Erco, Staff, Concord, Global, IGuzzini and Hoffmeister. It is also suitable for both ceiling and wall mounting.

ArtLed sheds light on the Mauritshuis

Following a two-year restoration, the stunning Mauritshuis in The Hague has now reopened with the galleries illuminated using Light Projects’ specially designed ArtLED fitting.

Light Projects is now lighting some of the most famous works of art in the world.

From Vemeer’s ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ through to Rubens and Rembrandt, the ArtLED is used to help create wonderfully atmospheric galleries – dramatically lit in a scheme by Hans Wolff lighting design.
